OBITUARY

Fred Kovachevich Roman

November 19, 1924October 9, 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the passing of Internationally Renowned Architect Fred (Predrag) Kovachevich Roman (Engineer of Architecture) (OAA, OAQ, RAIC) on October 9, 2020. Known for his creative and innovative designs spanning continents, both his residential and church designs have become landmarks and will continue as a professional legacy to his talent, imagination, passion, and spirit.

Born in Zagreb, Yugoslavia in 1924, Fred survived, surrounded by the war around and overhead, finally managing to land in Montreal in December 1951 after spending time navigating Italy and Germany. Here he started his new life and met Greta, and they were married. Through his life Fred always had a love for the sea, boats and travel, which he passed on to his family.

In the end, Fred finished his life as he always lived it, on his own terms, in his own way, at home surrounded by his family. He is survived by and will be greatly missed by his wife Greta of 57 years (nee MacDonald), son Christopher, grandchildren Alyssa and Milan.

Given our covid19 circumstances, service will be for immediate family.
